Russian-born and raised in Surrey at an American school, Olga Koch is a fiercely funny act with unique perspectives that aren’t simply confined to her unusual backstory. We talk about her background in computer science and find some parallels between jokes and code; talk about the difference in-between her comic voice onstage and on Twitter; and learn how she deals with conditional anxiety, exceptionalism, and the fear that comedy won’t return.

Also featuring why her parents wouldn’t be impressed with a Netflix special, and why you can’t eat hope for dinner…

Discover what Olga’s up to besides working hard all the time:
